Name Root:
*ansuR > áss *gautaz
This name derives from the Old Norse “Ásgautr,” composed of two elements: “*ansuR > áss” (heathen god) plus “*gautaz” (Goth, Geat, from Gautland “Götaland, Gothia in southern Sweden”). In turn, the name means “the God who comes from Götaland, the god of Götaland.” Götaland is one of three lands of Sweden and comprises ten provinces. Geographically it is located in the south of Sweden, bounded to the north by Svealand, with the deep woods of Tiveden, Tylöskog, and Kolmården marking the border. The name was firmly established in England in the Old English forms “Osgot,” and “Osgod” before the Norman Conquest of 1066, and after that date was reinforced by the Norman forms “Ansgot” and “Angot.” Asgaut Steinnes (1892–1973) was a Norwegian archivist and historian who specialized in the Middle Ages. The name-day is observed on November 1, the Feast of All Saints.
